I was recently in the fiber swap and my partners questionnaire listed mustard yellow and teal as a favorite color combination. I wasn't really sure about it, but I went ahead and got some fiber and turned it into some hand combed top.

I really liked the colors together, and decided I needed some fiber in this color for myself. Instead of making for hand combed top, I decided to see how the colors would look in rolag form. They turned out beautiful as well. In fact I like them so much, I may need to go get more fiber to make more of them.

And now for content information: the yellow is colonial wool, teal is merino, white is faux cashemere (which is so incredibly soft), there is some angelina flash fiber, and I believe a little bit of firestar.

I love the colors as rolags! Very pretty, and they sound like theyd be fantastic to spin. Smiley

These are amazing. Those rolags rock. Why don't I use rolags more often? Because they don't look like yours maybe?
